Sesame Chicken Skewers

Dairy Free Nut Free Fish Free Gluten Free 

A favorite appetizer!

½ cup gluten-free soy sauce (check label for allergens)
1/3 cup of honey
1 tablespoon corn starch
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
About 2 pounds of chicken tenders
1/3 cup of sesame seeds

To make the marinade, combine in a saucepan the soy sauce, honey, cornstarch, lemon juice, curry powder, ginger and red pepper flakes (optional); stir well to dissolve the cornstarch.

Heat the marinade over medium heat until it boils and thickens. Cool slightly. Place the chicken tenders in a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over. For best flavor, marinate overnight; but make sure to marinate for at least one hour. 

When ready to cook, line the bottom of a 2-piece broiler pan with foil. Skewer the tenders on wooden skewers, which have been soaked in water for at least one hour. Line the skewers up on the pan, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Cook in a 425 degree F oven for about 25 minutes, or until the juices run clear when the chicken is cut into.

Serves about 12-14 as an appetizer.
